Are we snowbound hounds? I’m not sure, but I think we might be. A good friend of ours sent us a BarkBox because she said it would be perfect for the three of us. Boy is she ever right! This toy I have here is the family favorite but the other toy and the treats are good too.
Our friend sent us a BarkBox. We don’t subscribe to any boxes because we have plenty of toys and treats already, but once and a while such a box is fun. Olivia got one when she was a young pup, and she really enjoyed it, and still plays with those toys.
The toy in the box is a two piece snowman. The bottom is a crinkle toy and good for tug a war, the head squeaks and holds treats.
Snowman Peepers are the treats in the box. They are made to fit into the holes in the snowman’s head. Blueberry is the flavor, they contain charcoal and vanilla, and are made in the USA. Both Olivia and I love the way the peepers taste too.
Mom put the treats into the holes in the snowman head and we tried to figure out how in the world we could get them out. It was a tough task, but I guess that is a good thing.
Once we got the treats out of the head, it was time to test it for play. I love a good squeaker, and this head squeaks nicely. It does get slippery and I kept dropping it.
The puppy side of Olivia went crazy with the head. She too found it slippery and ended up dropping it several times.
Not being one to give up, she found it better to tackle and play with the head piece using it more like a soccer ball.
Since there are multiple dogs and the favorite toy in the crinkle bottom half of the snowman, keep away became the game of the day.
Madison checked out the crinkle toy, but she isn’t a big toy hound. Most of the time if she has a toy, it is too keep Olivia from having it.
Olivia got the toy back and took off racing around the yard with it. She loves to run with toys and hopes one of us will chase her. I guess snowbound hounds all have some way to blow off extra energy!
Madison is having trouble running in the snow with her short legs because of the crust on top, but she doesn’t give up. She was letting Olivia know that she wanted the toy back.
Olivia is pretty fearless. She ignored Madison, and kept on racing and racing all around the yard with the toy.
Finally Olivia stopped and left the toy unattended. Madison swooped in and took it back. No, she didn’t play with it, she just guarded it.
These snowbound hounds are so happy with our gift! Thank you so much, Jan and the pups! We sure are having a fun time with this box that seems to have been made just for us!
We are happy, so we’re joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
